Culture & Inclusion


At Hershey, we believe that inclusion makes a difference in successfully operating our business and drives the richer collaboration that we need to help our business grow. As our business evolves, bringing more voices and perspectives to the conversation supports our continued success. And we believe our differences are a source of energy and innovation for our company. We’ve launched our most ambitious diversity, equity, and inclusion goals to date, and as a company, we’ve come a long way. 


Up, down and across our company, you will see a diversity of age, gender, religion, race, and more. Hershey is progressing its five-year inclusion agenda which is key to our growth strategy and employee experience.


The Pathways Framework is our five-year plan to make Hershey more diverse and inclusive with three areas of focus:

  • Pathways to Join: we need to bring in a wider range of talent and perspectives
  • Pathways to Grow: we need to recognize and develop talent we haven’t in the past
  • Pathways to Reach Out: we need to show up for consumers and communities in new ways

Hershey is a purpose driven company which believes in and stands for the power of inclusion. Our vibrant, diverse, and highly engaged workforce advances our vision, company purpose, and climate. success is dependent on seeking, incorporating, and developing diverse perspectives and diverse leaders. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Michele Buck said, “Our job is to ensure there is a highly qualified, diverse set of executives ready to lead this company.”




"Diversity is key to our company's success so we are able to understand everyone's perspective to make the best decision."
